|Riverfire, as the name suggests, is an annual event that "sets the river on fire" with a spectacular fireworks display on a night late in September.
The fireworks are accompanied by a soundtrack blast out obver loudspeakers, comprising both the year's biggest hits and a stable of classics.
The fireworks - regarded as one of the most technically challenging and electrifying fireworks displays in Australia - are set off from bridges, barges and city rooftops.
The display runs from 7pm to 7.25pm. F18 Super Hornet jets fly over to herald the start of the event.
